2021 Château de Beaucastel Coudoulet De Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Rouge BIO
Château de Beaucastel is located in a magical setting dotted with vineyards, centuries-old olive trees and truffle oaks. Beaucastel, that is the most famous wine of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Here you will find nature in its purest form and its power comes to rest. The typical rolled boulders are the secret of its vineyards in which gnarled vines grow in traditional 'gobelet' shapes. On this ancient soil we find the 13 grape varieties that are permitted in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. All these 13 grape varieties form the basis of the mythical blends of Château de Beaucastel, where they are grown biodynamically. They are one of the last to make use of the richness and complexity that this blend offers.
The history of Beaucastel starts in the early 17th century. The Perrins appeared in the early 20th century. We are now five generations further and there is a global company in the field of quality wines. From very affordable to the absolute top. Everything about the vision, technique and vineyard management that has given Beaucastel the coveted global top position applies to the vineyards and the wines with the other appellations of origin, such as Ventoux, Luberon, Cotes du Rhone, Gigondas, Vinsobres, Rasteau and Vacqueyras. While retaining its own character; the differences between the wines are large and prove the respectful working method
The wines of Coudoulet can reach unprecedented heights in great years and are often preferred over the much more expensive Beaucastels. Certainly at an earlier stage in anticipation of the development of the Beaucastel wines, which usually take their revenge extensively and convincingly at a later age. Here we get to the heart of the matter. The material with the greatest long-term potential and the most finesse is destined for Beaucastel. With Coudoulet we can experience that the pleasure is irresistibly expressed in the young wine at an early stage.
The red Coudoulet is a blend of Grenache 30%, Mourvèdre 30%, Syrah 20%, Cinsault 20%. The grapes are hand-picked and selection takes place in the vineyard and on the selection tables. The final grapes are first briefly heated to 30 degrees and then cooled again to 20 degrees. In this biological way, any unwanted yeasts are biologically removed. The different grapes are vinified individually and are then blended and the blend then remains in large oak barrels for 6-8 months. The de Beaucastel Coudoulet Rouge offers a surprisingly ripe, rounded style with notes of strawberries, raspberries and peppery herbs. The wine is clear and lively. On the palate this medium-bodied wine is very pleasantly creamy on the palate and hits of thyme. A beautiful aftertaste with soft tannins.
